Be The Change NZ is inspired by anti-bullying programmes all over the world, including NZ; such as USA's own Ellen, the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, The Bully Project, Challenge Day; NZ's Attitude Programme, The Mental Health Foundation and Youthline; England's Bullying UK and the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
Bullying is the HIGHEST rated social issue in New Zealand schools. Rather than finger-pointing, lecturing to or attacking people for this problem, Be The Change NZ focus on a preventative approach - one that highlights the positive aspects of schools and empowers young people to build on and promote this.
